summer in the states is pretty there is a river a raindrop and two roosters in front of me neil young is whispering wisdom from the screen porch my barn loft room is too hot to go in right now but i don’t need a room until after sunset anyways.
this summer we’re putting out Wrongbrain6. If you’re around NH, ME, or MA make sure to get a copy; i’ve received some excellent poetry and i’m pumped to publish it.

I’m excited to say that this stateside summer my next chapbook “Man’s Best Friend” is being published by 2 steps press in Athens, Georgia. Brian makes beautiful books for the love of aesthetics. It should be out in September. I’m going down there to pick it up!
In september in athens there is an art show going on called ‘content’. One of my upcoming poems “Reasons” (MarcoPolo and upcoming in MBF) will be exhibited therein as a painting. Please find more info on this show and upcoming readings in the appearances section.
